Cosmic Public Service Announcement

From the middle of her journey through impatient young Aries, the sun offers a public service announcement: Chill. Don’t buy into the hype. Your phone calls can wait; you’ll get there when you get there; urgency is an opinion. Rushing only contributes to nervousness, excess stress and hot tempers. Let the Pisces moon help you keep Zen.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Having a lot of money means you can help people. Having very little money means less stuff to manage and be stressed about. Both states have their merits, so enjoy wherever you are.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As you dream about a trip you want to take, the mental traveling you’ll do is almost as wonderful as the real thing — and without any of the cost or risk. Eventually, you’ll get where you want to go.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When your body needs food, so does your mind. Timely and healthful eating will be necessary for you to turn out an optimal performance and meet the demands of the day.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The thing about mediocrity is that it’s relative. That’s why you can never tell whether another person is settling for less. People have their own ideas about the parameters of more and less, and you won’t judge that.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Luckily, change doesn’t happen instantly. If it did, existence would be chaotic and meaningless. The change you’re making is a slow process, and it’s going well. You’ll see in a few weeks!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may suddenly realize you don’t need something (or someone) you thought was absolutely crucial to your scene. Replacing “need” with “want” (or “don’t want,” for that matter) is liberating.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The kitchen cabinets are telling a story about what you like, how organized you are and what you haven’t been able to let go of. Do you dare take these cabinets on as a project and change the story?

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Getting into a relationship is like getting into a car deal. To avoid buyer’s remorse, you’ll examine the issues, observe the quirks, and look for flaws and faults before you take things any further.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have ideas. Also, you know how to conjure more when you run out. If anyone needs ideas, you’re the one they should ask. Note that some people mistake ideas for opinions. Not you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Be wary of the one who comes on strong in the beginning. This may actually be a sign of commitment phobia. It’s complicated, but you can avoid the complication by vowing only to form healthy, natural-feeling relationships.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You tap into the secret desires of others. You know they want excitement and challenge, and you provide this, perhaps unconsciously but quite thoroughly nonetheless.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You learn a lot about a person by observing his or her daily routine. Your routine now can be shuffled ever so slightly to fit nicely with the patterns of another.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 6). You are ambitious, but you don’t want for power and money. You’re more interested in matters of social change, creativity and peace. You have high ideals, but the results you see in April and May let you know that they are also attainable. Family developments in June brighten your scene. A special connection rules the summer. Libra and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 5, 27, 44 and 39.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I resonated with the Cancer who gets nervous during interviews. I’m a nervous Cancer, too, but not just during interviews — also in ordinary circumstances with clerks in the store, ordering food in a restaurant or talking to relatives on the phone. I wish I could calm down, but I’ve lived with this awkwardness my whole life. Now I’m 39, and there’s no sign of things changing. Do you have any suggestions?”

Cancer people are a sensitive lot. Your sign rules the stomach, though sometimes it feels as though the butterflies therein are ruling you. Also, you tune in to your environment more acutely than most, and integrating all you feel and observe requires more energy because of this. That’s one of the reasons why you love to spend time in your own home, where you feel completely safe to process and recuperate from all you’ve experienced.

The key to living more peacefully within your own being lies in acceptance. It’s possible that you will always deal with this social nervousness. Accept it totally. It’s really OK. Whoever told you that you should feel differently was wrong. You feel how you do, and that’s right for you. Accept it. You’ll move through it. There’s nothing wrong with you. Accept the fear, and keep showing up for life.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Comedy king Paul Rudd is riding a tidal wave of success these days, turning out comedies at breakneck speed. The Aries actor is currently conjuring up more hilarity with the all-star cast of the highly anticipated “Anchorman: the Legend Continues.” Born when the sun, Mercury, Venus and Saturn were all in Aries, Rudd has the energy of 10 men.
